Sony’s adaptation of their best-selling video game Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune has been in the works for years. David O. Russell (Silver Linings Playbook) was attached several years ago, and after he left the project, Neil Burger (Divergent) stepped in, but he eventually dropped out as well. Earlier this year, director Seth Gordon (Horrible Bosses) signed on to direct, and last week he said he hopes to begin filming in early 2015. Now, THR’s Borys Kit has tweeted that the Uncharted release date will be June 10, 2016.
For those unfamiliar with the franchise, it follow treasure hunter Nathan Drake, who is the descendant of famous explorer Sir Francis Drake. The games carry a blockbuster attitude as they take the player around the wisecracking, Indiana Jones-inspired protagonist around the globe to find fabled cities like El Dorado and Shangri-La. The Uncharted games are pretty much interactive movies if movies featured a hero who killed hundreds of people and had incredible dexterity. They’re really fun.
